In case you missed it, Lisa Barone asks an interesting question: Is Google moving in the wrong direction? And as Barone steps through the search engine's mantras, from "don't be evil," to "organize the world's information," I can't help but think that the underlying theme seems to shout "Where's the simplicity now?"
Barone writes "Google was about taking the strain off doing whatever it was you wanted to do. That's what I liked." Complexity turns people off. Simply, Barone poses the question if enough is enough.
